Objectives and Approach

This project is the application phase of work conducted in project 5047.

The overall objective of QUICKCHIPS is to make available to industry in general, and to SMEs in particular, powerful new technologies and commercial structures supporting the design of ASICs and offering low-cost rapid turnaround prototyping.

The project consists of closely related activities in the areas of CAD, laser lithography equipment, interconnect process technology and telecommunications. In order to ensure the exploitation of results, the partners will be participating in the formation of a commercial organisation, the QCC Quickchips consortium, which aims to offer ASIC development support, prototyping and semiconductor brokerage services exploiting the new technologies developed in the project.

Project activities include:
